Short notice request gives Workboat Provider the opportunity to show off unrivaled customer service.
A new client rang us for immediate support with a workboat hire package to transfer workers to (and from) an offshore wind farm turbine site. An added-extra request was the ability to lift and collect the indication marks that designated the subsea cable track.
We discussed the objectives and advised a one week bareboat hire package with our 7.8m, ten person capacity rib, Devotion. With an MCA category 3 certificate, this Ribcraft can travel up to 20 miles from any safe-haven making Devotion purpose-built to tackle the demands of commercial use, as well as extended long-distance cruising. And with a hefty 250hp Suzuki outboard engine, she is unbeatable for outstanding safety, performance and dependability which made this workboat package the perfect choice for North Sea crew transfers, project support and buoy retrievals. Perfect for safety boat hire.
Good weather and quiet seas gave the project a clear go-ahead.
For expediency, our client chose a bareboat charter and opted to urgently collect their workboat hire package from Workboat Provider’s office base in Mersea. We were ready for them when they arrived at our offices. The client trailered Devolution, complete with a full tank of fuel, and all of the ancillary gear they needed to Lowestoft. Over the course of the week, Devolution successfully supported multiple crew transfers and wind farm cable operations, as well as retrieving numerous indication buoys without fail.
Happy client. Happy Workboat Provider.
